HP Biased Headline: J-Street Support

The Huffington Post busted out a classic biased headline today when discussing one of its favorite lobby groups, J-Street:

The article headline, while technically correct, is also misleading.

If you read the headline, which the Huffington Post hopes you won't, it clearly states: "Liberal pro-Israel advocacy group J Street has decided not to take a position on the White House’s Syria resolution currently being debated in Congress." So while it's technically true that J-Street doesn't support a Syria strike, it also doesn't oppose a Syria strike. 

Which makes the only question now, why did the Huffington Post publish an article about a lobby group not taking a stand on something? 

And that's not even discussing the description of J-Street as "pro-Israel."
